Default 30 Years Ago Today.

30 years ago today, my parents dropped me off at the recruiter's office to catch a flight to boot camp. They never came back and got me. Happy Halloween, I'm officially retired!

Congrats man, and thanks! You might have the need for something like this now, minus the crappy foreign beer.
